I am a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the HCPC and a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society.
I work with clients with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, low mood, mood swings, self-harm, medically unexplained aches and pains, relational and interpersonal problems and life transition. I offer therapy in English and Greek.
My training in Psychology means that I can draw from a number of different modalities, such as cognitive behavioural, psychodynamic and humanistic, and offer an integrative approach to my clients. I will tailor my approach to each client and offer an individualised therapeutic experience. I am particularly interested in language, the words we use to describe emotion or to talk to ourselves, as well as the bodily experience of emotion.
I have extensive experience working with a variety of clients in diverse settings, such as addiction treatment services, local GP practices, private psychiatric units, the NHS and the charity sector.
I am the Clinical Director at Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, one of the largest local Mind associations, and work clinically with Psych Health. Additionally, I am a visiting Lecturer and Research Supervisor in the Counselling Psychology Doctorate programmes at City, University of London and Regents University, London.
I am interested in research, particularly in areas regarding body image, sense of self, embodiment and self harm. My latest study was focused on the experience of marks and scars as a result of self-harm and most recently I have been developing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy protocols for depression and anxiety.
